Ethic Culture Anaylsis

Ethics homework

Ethical Culture Analysis Project (Hallmark Assessment (HAT)) This project provides the opportunity to analyze the ethical culture and climate of a real organization of your choice. This must be an organization with which you are personally familiar so that you can secure the interviews. To complete the assignment you will need to read online and printed materials, draw upon news articles, and conduct at least 2 interviews with current or former members of the organization (if possible, get the perspective of one management employee/one non-management employee). You should introduce and reflect on theories and concepts from the readings. Your book offers several ethics audit questions for organizations that you can use.

This paper should be approximately 8 pages (1700-2500 words)

History. Brief history of the organization and unit, and statement of purpose for the paper.

- Ethical Challenges. Overview of an ethical challenge (with a positive or negative outcome) the organization or unit leaders and members have faced (focus on the last 5 years, but if there is something historic that has had a lasting impression on the culture you should include). The ethical challenge may be one with a positive outcome, or one that resulted in a negative outcome such as a lawsuit.

- Power and/or Leadership and/or Trust. You must interview one person who has supervisory responsibility, and one person with non-supervisory responsibility, and determine their personal beliefs about power or leadership or trust in this situation (e.g. rely on Chapter 5 for formulating 3-5 questions. Also discuss how you think the leader in this situation is dealing with the six types of leadership challenges (see Chapter 7). - Culture and Climate. Explore current ethical culture and climate based on official and unofficial measures (e.g., interviews; mission statement, ethics code, morale in organization, reputation in community).

- Ratings. Include relevant ratings of this organization based on tools in the Johnson text (Multiple examples exist in your text). Provide rationale for ratings.

- Assessment. Assessment of whether this organization is ethically decoupled or transformed. (Evidence for this assessment should be clearly linked to the previous sections of your paper including evidence from your interviews, news articles, internal communication, etc.)

- Recommendations. Make specific, actionable recommendations on how this organization can become a more ethical workplace.
